4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was comfortable and clean, and you can't beat the view of the ocean! The staff was friendly and helpful. Some areas of the building could use a little renovation as it's showing some age, but overall it wasn't bad. Well be back!

I go here every summer around my b-day in august and every year there is an issue with the pool or the hot tub. One year hot tub was cold one year pool had ice cubes now this Saturday a fire in the laundry room will kill the pool once again on the biggest party weekend of the year. Then... More

I am beyond furious after our stay here! My family and I were informed on the 16th of May that there had been a small fire and the pool was closed as well as the hot tub. (One day before our arrival) We were very disappointed because our 7 year old daughter was looking forward to playing in the pool.... More

My wife and I are at the Clam Digger Inn now and we are enjoying every minute of it. The staff is very courteous and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and suitably furnished, and the view of the ocean is fantastic. The restaurant has a very good selection and the prices are ok. We really appreciated the ocean view while... More

I received a call the day before check-in (May 16) telling me that pool and hot tub area were closed due to fire in laundry room area. I was disappointed because one main reason we stayed here was the pool, but I understood this was beyond their control. When we checked in on May 17th I found out that the... More

I took my mother for this past mother's day weekend. You could not use the pool or hot tub the entire weekend. The staff in the restaurant did not seem happy at all from the hostess to the wait staff. The front desk upon check out never asked me how my stay was at all. They did not even print... More

Our family stayed here for a wedding about three weeks ago. The beach is great and the staff was very helpful. The restaurant was reasonably priced and served up a good breakfast. All rooms have an oceanfront balcony and we love that. The hotel was a Ramada years ago and the rooms are dated. The tub/toilet area is very cramped.... More

This little hidden gem is just too good to pass up. Every room is oceanfront with your own private balcony, although small it's large enough for a couple of chairs and a cooler of beer. The price of the room is well worth the view. At night, there is a large light that shines out into the ocean where thousands... More

My wife and I took advantage of a two night Easter weekend package which included two nights stay plus breakfast for two one morning and dinner for two one evening. We had stayed at the Clam Digger before and it looks like they had done some renovations since we had been there. Check-in was quick and without problems as was... More
